|Permaculture: A Designers' Manual - Bill Mollison|
Permaculture (permanent agriculture) is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity, stability, and resilience of natural ecosystems. It is the harmonious integration of langscape and people providing their food, energy, shelter, and other material and non-material needs in a sustainable way. Without permanent agriculture there is no possibility of a stable social order.

|The Theology of Martin Luther King, Jr. - James H. Cone|
Martin Luther King, Jr. was a theologian and preacher of the black church. No one can understand his theology apart from the history of the black religious experience. This is not to deny other important influences in his thinking; but because most of King's interpreters ignored or belittled the place of the black church in his intellectual development, it is necessary to establish the claim that the faith of the black church was the most important source of Kin's theology?

|Ozymandias Sabotage Handbook - Cafe Underground in Britain|
This guide is not really about 'noble' sabotage-for example people clamping themselves to diggers on road projects. It's about taking action against the everyday destruction of the environment-it's about afforestation (of open areas), deforestation (of natural woodlands), polluting industries, and the ceaseless growth of urbanised areas while inner cities are left derelict. Specifically, it's about sabotaging machinery, and getting away with it.

|Toward the Queerest Insurrection|
Some will read "queer" as synonymous with "gay and lesbian" or "LGBT". This reading falls short. While those who would fit within the constructions of "L", "G", "B" or "T" could fall within the discursive limits of queer, queer is not a stable area to inhabit.

Yet forty years after the military defeat of Fascists and National Socialists, we can see that nationalism did not only survive but was born again, underwent a revival...

But this tide along with the prospective women leaders seems to recede once the revolution is completed or is defeated. The chief reason behind this phenomenon is the existence of the concept of private property...

One-evident in the activities of the mainstream anarcho-syndicalist movement-understood women's subordination to be rooted in her economic domination and, consequently, viewed economic participation as the route to empowerment...

|The Handbook of Anarchy - J.A. Andrews|
Anarchy is freedom. The literal meaning of the word "free" is to love or like; thus when we say that a man is free we imply that he is "to like," that is, he has only to like in order to decide what he will do, or try to do. Among the things which people in general like, is to avoid hurting others, and as sometimes to do a particular thing which one would like would come in conflict with this, it becomes a matter for consideration which course one likes the best.

The biofuels movement is propelled by the powerful myth of progress; the myth that with the right technology, the right machines, the right fuel, we can go on living as we currently live. The myth of progress represents horrible misunderstanding of our past, and it equally misunderstands the future. Rather than leading to an age of renewable fuel, the biofuel movement is more likely to be the seed of a global scale genocide.
